Nottingham East MP Chris Leslie quits Labour Party

Nottingham East MP Chris Leslie has quit the Labour Party.

Leslie shared his reasons for leaving the party at a press conference this morning:

He said: “There is an ‘appalling culture’ of closing down debate in Labour – on and offline – on antisemitism.

“Enough is enough, there must be a better way forward, and there can be a better way forward.”

Leslie went on to accuse Corbyn of acting in ‘betrayal’ on Europe by enabling Brexit and holding back from allowing the public a final say.

UK MPs Chuka Umunna, Luciana Berger, Angela Smith, Mike Gapes, Gavin Shuker and Ann Coffey have also quit the party.
